How A Narcissist Reacts To Your Silence

It’s true that actions speak louder than words, but silence speaks even louder. When you go silent around a narcissist, it means you are no longer engaging with them. You are not responding to their insults, lies, or manipulations, and that can make them very upset. You see, narcissists crave attention and control. They want to be the center of everything, and they want you to react to everything they do. But when you go silent, it takes away their power, and they don’t like that at all. So, they might start to do some pretty nasty things to get your attention back.

Whether you’ve just ended a relationship with a narcissist or feel like you’re enduring a lifelong sentence, silence can become your best friend. If you need help making sense of all that’s going on between you and the narcissist and figuring out how to set boundaries and stop getting triggered, check out the Narcissist Immunity Boot Camp (link in the description).

But when you go silent with a narcissist, one thing they might do is start spreading rumors and lies about you to other people. This is what we call the smear campaign, and there’s no sugarcoating it – it sucks. They might try to make you look bad so that others will turn against you. And although it feels very personal, it’s important to remember that not only is it not personal, but it’s not your fault. The narcissist is the one who’s acting out of line, and the worst thing you can do is feed them with your reactions. As much as you might want to respond, remember, you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. If someone is trying to bring you down, it’s okay to distance yourself from them. You deserve better than all that.

So, stay strong, stay positive, and know that you’re not alone in dealing with narcissistic behavior.
